Delicious meal. Great ambiance with interesting guests. The best dinner we had during our stay in San Francisco. You can bring your own wine as long as you pay a corkage fee. Highly recommended.

Good company nice, enjoyable conversation, great meal. Don't miss it if you have a chance to go. I also enjoyed the chef coming out at the end of the meal to discuss sustainable fishing with us and to answer any of the guests' questions.

The food was superbly done with great ingredients (selected by our chef that morning). The setting was such that we could meet new friends while enjoying the excellent food. It was also great to have an opportunity afterwards to socialize with Chef Don.
